Frame Drum Academy would like reward those that are truly dedicated to learning the craft of frame drumming with our discounted bundle package!
If you are a Frame Drum Lover - This is the Package for you!
Some of our Graduates!
SUGGESTED WAY TO ENJOY OUR BUNDLE PACKAGE:
Our Frame Drum Academy 101 & 202 programs are carefully created, where each lesson builds on the previous. Therefore, it is HIGHLY recommended that if you chose our BUNDLE PACKAGE (which we think is the best option for Frame Drum lovers) - that you COMPLETE the Frame Drum 101 program FIRST - before doing Frame Drum 202.
Since there are over 225+ Videos in EACH program - AND each video builds upon the next, it is highly encouraged to NOT do both programs at the same time, or you can easily get overwhelmed ~ in a drum haze ~ and in technique overwhelm, and we do not want that!
Here is my suggested way to use this Bundle Package:
"I went from not playing a musical instrument at all to drumming for my yoga classes in a couple of months. Not only has Marla and her Frame Drum Academy turned me into a musician; but I also have increased my confidence, my desire to share my talents with others, and my passion for music and rhythm. I cannot recommend this program enough!"
Meaghan Beishline, Pennsylvania

Linda Schineder, Ohio
"I participated in Marla’s brilliantly presented Frame Drum 202. I work with the videos on a regular basis to learn new concepts and to refresh myself on more familiar techniques - Yet I have barely scratched the surface of the volume of techniques presented. I GIVE THIS PROGRAM A 5 STARS. No one has ever done anything this important for us who crave to learn this material."
Norma Kaplis, New York
"My experience with the Frame Drum Academy 101 and 202 has been amazing. The online courses are clear, easy to follow and a master class of technique and basics of frame drumming."

Hello, I'm Marla… a Grammy-nominated musician and one of the few female frame drum specialists in the world today.
Having studied music since I was three years old, music is my first love and greatest passion! I hold a BFA & MFA in Percussion and have been fortunate to study with some of the most world-renowned, inspiring teachers and leading masters in frame drum, Indian and West African drumming.
Delighted to pass on what I’ve learned, I’ve now been teaching for over 25 years. I have seen, first-hand, the amazing power of music to help heal and bring joy. Over 15 years ago, I first started helping students online, when that kind of learning was a strange new world.
The Frame Drum Academy online is my dream child. Born in 2015, we currently have hundreds of happy students and are growing by the day! Welcome to the family... we cannot wait to walk beside you on your special drum journey...
DEEP Gratitude to my teachers, without my excellent teachers, I would not be where I am today!
If you were to suggest only ONE drum for this program, I recommend a 16" drum - It is the perfect size for playing in the 3 playing styles. Highly recommended (but not necessary) for the passionate drum student!
Other sizes will be fine for the program, but your hands may hurt if you're playing a bigger drum in the upright style (20"-22".)
Here are My Suggested Frame Drum Sizes:
Cooperman Drums is our sponsor. Of course, its not essential you play a Cooperman drum for the program, but they are truly amazing! Each Drum is custom made by hand & the drums last a liftime. All students recieve a 10% discount on a Cooperman drum (discount code given when you sign up).
Other brands of frame drums are fine to use. REMO sells good beginner 16" drums that you can purchase on Amazon.
